Prime Minister Narendra Modi today condemned the naxal attack on CRPF personnel in Chhattisgarh, terming it as a “cowardly and deplorable” act, and asserted that the sacrifices of the martyrs will not go in vain.

“Attack on @crpfindia personnel in Chhattisgarh is cowardly & deplorable. We are monitoring the situation closely,” he tweeted.

“We are proud of the valour of our @crpfindia personnel. The sacrifice of the martyrs will not go in vain. Condolences to their families,” he added.

He wished speedy recovery to those injured in today’s attack.
